Shigeru Miyamoto, Nintendo’s most legendary game designer, has gone on record about the future possibilities for the Metroid series, and it’s definitely a glimmer of hope. From there, I tackle head-on why I believe Metroid is a superior gaming franchise to the Microsoft sci-fi powerhouse Halo series. Give it a read!
… Why the hell do people still compare Metroid with Halo.
apparently every fandom at large needs its boogeyman “enemy” fandom no matter how irrelevant they are to each other and how stupid the comparison is to anyone with an iota of sense (see also: the brief era of homestuck vs hetalia)
Hey guys, let’s make a fandom rivalry between Wolf’s Rain and All Dogs go to Heaven.
'Cause you know. They have dogs in them.
Sorry fellas, but I wasn’t the first one to bring this comparison up. To be fair to Halo, it has a far richer universe because Microsoft is more willing to expand it across different mediums (I’ve thoroughly enjoyed Halo comics, novels, and Forward Unto Dawn).
They are a part of the same genre though, with relatively similar characters conceptually. I think that in and of itself allows for comparison, but yes, the games themselves are pretty different outside of the format of Metroid Prime.
